Possible Radiohead song:

I thought it was funny when I saw this on my Veimo site. "You are at the beginning/You are at the end" Its so poetic.

Also, I am still deadlocked over what color combinations I should get on my Timbuk2 bag. Right now these are the final three:

Classic Webs

Oh my GOD! Check out this classic webiste!

I made that baby back in 2004 I believe. Just another attempt at being a rock star. Look at that face! So young!

I am currently working on an entire network of blogs/websites. I've been reading a lot of articles by Paul Stamatiou (the lucky bastard). He is 21, still in college, and already has one of the hottest websites on the net. I completely understand why he is so successful. He's a great writer and has loads of useful information for those who are tech minded . I am totally jealous.

Everyone should check his website out if tech news and reviews interest you. Here are some articles I've been re-reading a lot:

How I Got A MacBook Air for $15

This one helped me with setting up a brand new mac. Behind the Scenes
This one has a lot of program/plug-in advice for high octane efficiency. Also a sort of "How to" for what I'd like to do. I just need to integrate my music/label angle.
First Impression: Dell 24"
This article helped me realize maybe one of the reason why I don't do a lot on my mac now is because I get so frustrated by the 13" screen. An external monitor, probably not as nice as PSTAMs, is next on my "To Buy" list.

Ten Blogs

I've turned into a junkie, an internet junkie. I've always been an avid surfer but now that I sit at a desk all day long with access to a high speed connection, my addiction has evolved. I am engulfed by the Web 2.0 experience. I'm working on my fifth blog now, I just can't stop! The wealth of knowledge out there is only matched by the ease of access. And in turn, I have turned into a depository for information.

From the desire to contribute all I can to the web experience I've compiled a list of 10 random blogs I really like (in no particular order):
1 Gizmodo
2 Paul Stamatiou
3 Job Bored
4 Hype Machine
5 Any Number of Things
6 Best Article Everyday
7 The Wishful Writer
8 Lifehacker
9 Download Squad
10 Valleywag

And the coolest thing about these sites is they all link to one another. It is all tailored to content! So if you find one site you really like, you'll probably find ten more. It is like the Wikipedia phenomenon. You'll go onto Wikipeida to find information about Governor Spitzer and before you know it you're reading about operation Castle Romeo.

Use Twitter. I am a simple human being. This video convinced my simple mind. Look for me: karen_jane.

I Laugh Every Time

I've had this picture on my computer for a while, and every time I look at it I can't stop myself from bursting out laughing. The funniest thing though is that she used her 50-50 life line! Unbelievable!

3D imaging and nauseous vitamins

Isn't incredible what we hold inside of us? Sometimes I forget how amazing the human body truly is. I've been watching this TV series on the Discovery Channel called "Human Body: Pushing the Limits". It is awesome. There are four episodes: "Sensation, Brain Power, Sight, and Strength". I've caught all but the "Sight" episode. While watching the show you can't help but want to take better care of yourself. You know, start going to the gym, take more vitamins, eat a more nutritious diet, etc.

However, the series led me to something interesting:

After an episode last night I had an enormous feeling of guilt. I believe it stemmed from the notion that if we don't take care of ourselves, if we don't use our bodies to their fullest potential, then we are being irresponsible human beings! Now that might sound kind of harsh and militant, but seriously, we take so much for granted when it comes to our bodies.

I'll take it as a motivator.


On another semi-related note, I feel nauseated from the vitamins I just took. So a note from the wise, take food with your multi-vitamin!
